“That, dillop brain, is what getting close to the Darke does. It makes you think only of yourself." It takes you away from people you care about."

Darke - Angie Sage, Mark Zug

Another great Septimus adventure. I enjoyed this very much. Like all the books before it, Septimus is put to a test that he may never come back from and this is by far the most frightening of all. Jenna and the whole Castle learn that old enemies can make for great allies and finally there is some long over due healing in the Heap family. While Darke isn't my favorite in the series it's up there on my list.
